The mascot of the Air Force athletic teams is the falcon, as Pluvialis pointed out at length in her book. This exhibit in the visitors center talks about the active falconry program that the cadets have on campus. Gyrfalcons are brought to the sidelines of Air Force football games by cadets in the falconry program.
We also were able to see some of the aircraft on static display, like this ginormous B-52 done up in SE Asia camo.
Also this T-38, a trainer and not a very sexy aircraft, but it was located near the Academy's air training field. It's painted up in the colors of the Thunderbirds aerobatic team - apparently they flew T-38s for a while in the 1970s as a fuel cost savings measure.
